10. You have to do some of the math yourself

Judge Rules to Uphold on Electronic Voting, Appeal Expected

Georgia will continue to use machines in Georgia which have been banned in other states.

"The machines they use in Georgia are the AccuVote-TS R6. Georgia is the only state that has state-wide unverifiable voting except for Maryland and Maryland has the same type of machines. Their legislature has voted to throw all of them away after this election and back to an optical scan. So Georgia will be the only state in the union which will have statewide unvertifiable voting at the end of this year," Garland Favorito of VoterGA told Atlanta Progressive News.

"These kind of machines were decertified 3 times in California; they were decertified in Ohio and Nevada; and basically they are being thrown out of Maryland. They have been decertified in practically every state they were used except Georgia," Favorito said.

After hearing one hour of oral presentation by the States attorney and a 20 minute presentation by VoterGAs attorney, Judge Johnson declared after a few minutes of deliberation that the machines were Constitutional and that the case challenging their use had no merit
